Kids ages 6-15 years (14h30 16h30)
· 6th July : Our special garden birds and make your own bird nest
Our Environmental educator will be telling us about which birds we find in our gardens, what they eat, which ones are likely to visit our bird feeders and use nest boxes. After this we’ll be doing some woodwork where each child will be making a nest box to take home.

· 7th July : Elephants forever & make your own clay elephant
Elephants are among the world’s most intelligent, sensitive animals and possess both empathy and self-awareness. Let’s learn more about them and make our own clay elephant.

· 8th July : Bugs in our gardens & make an insect hotel
Although insects are commonly thought of as pests, one must take the time to realize their benefits in our everyday lives. Without insects operating dutifully about their ecosystems, our world would be a very different place than the one we’ve come to enjoy. Let’s learn more about the benefits of insects in our gardens and make an insect hotel to help them find a home.

· 9th July : Fabulous Flamingos & make a flamingo marionette
With their pink and crimson plumage, long legs and necks, and strongly hooked bills, flamingos cannot be mistaken for any other type of bird. These beauties have long fascinated people. Let’s learn more about them and make a lovely marionette to take home.

· 10th July : Nature scavenger hunt & Cup cake decorating
Who doesn’t love a scavenger hunt? Get your kids outdoors and ‘scavenging’ for treasures in nature! Armed with a list of items to find, they’ll eagerly look at the world around them with more observant eyes. Decorate your own yummy cup cake afterwards! A juice and snack will be provided on this day.

What to bring:
All you need for a fun filled day at the Helderberg Nature Reserve. Pack a nice snack and juice and bring some warm clothes just in case you feel cold. An apron is also a great idea if you want to protect your clothes.

Cost per child:
R150.00 / session
Book the entire week and pay R650.00 (you save R100)
